Sorry, but I saw funny pics posted, so I figured why not. Another forum
I belong too has a thread on off topic just for funny pics.
My true passion is float fishing for big rainbow trout. Pretty lucky here in Canada that we get big runs of these majestic fish!
Here in Indiana we have stocked steelhead in the creaks, a summer and a fall run. Very powerful fish, I have better luck in late fall as it gets colder which helps slow them down a tad.
Yes, I'd love to do some steelhead fishing in the Pacific Northwest one day. Beautiful country. And I agree, the fishing just gets better once the cold weather sets in. Plus it weeds out the wannabees hahahaha
I've always been a "hotrodder"............only limit was self-imposed..........it's just toys. My last serious 4 wheeled hot rod........the "Black Rat"................
You lucky man what a beast
Back in 1967 I used to race in the 'Golden Knights' class at Raceway Park in Illinois. It was a stock 6 class.
I paid $75 for the '57 Chevy, had a total of about $150 in the thing. The feature race was usually stopped at least 3 times to clear the wrecks off the track. Never won a race, but I always finished in the money. Don't have a pic from the end of the season by then the year was unrecognizable.
I should add the stock fuel tank could not used, they wanted a 5 gallon, max, double wall one in the trunk behind a firewall. Picked mine up one night behind McDonalds, remember this was 1967 . The inspectors had a good laugh.
My seat belts (lap only) came out of a junk yard bus, the floor was so rusted I has to attach through the floor to a chain wrapped around the frame, which later became mandatory for all cars after a few folks got hurt. I was a kid working at a gas station then which made the whole endever easy. People would show up with engines that were obviously not stock, the resident hillbillies would have 'a talk' with them after the race. It was a 1/4 mile track, I never got it out of 2nd gear. One trick I always used was to avoid a stopped wreck (there were lots, of the 30 cars starting the race about 12 would finish. The first ten paid paid a few bucks) was to cut through the infield, those who went wide usually ended up out of the money. Ah the good 'ol days, cheap and crazy fun.
Thanks Neil.......it was. Without the front clip, off the line I could mash the throttle and pick up the front end..........
Hey Jackson.................my water pump in that 'Vette was the water pump out of a washing machine.............
